Creating Affordable Housing in New Rochelle


The high cost of housing in Westchester County has made affordable housing a priority in New Rochelle. The City has passed affordable housing legislation for new private developments requiring minimum set-asides of affordable units or a payment into an Affordable Housing Fund used to construct new units. Eligible renters may receive rental assistance from the City’s Section 8 Program to reduce their rent burden depending on the status of the waiting list.

New Rochelle also has a wide choice of affordable rental housing in the City.

Westchester County has information on affordable housing opportunities including rental units available on the County's website.

More information on Federal Housing Programs is available on the HUD website (US Dept. of Housing and Urban Renewal) En Espanol 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Eviction Moratorium that has been in place and set to expire on March 31, 2021 has been EXTENDED through June 30, 2021.
